Not only will she help her idol craft an enchanting new mystery, she ll get to live rent-free in Camilla's gorgeous Victorian home in the quaint town of Blue Lake, Indiana.
But Lena's fortune soon changes for the worse. First, she lands in the center of small town gossip for befriending the local recluse. Then, she stumbles across one thing that a Camilla Graham novel is never without a dead body, found on her new boss's lakefront property.
